Spirits From Ainu

. The first sample collection in the world composed of Japanese indigenous people 'Ainu' sounds. The CD-ROM contains samples and sounds in Acid, Wav, Rex2, and Kontakt formats.

The Ainu people have been passing their instruments and religious songs from generation to generation and ?Spirits From Ainu captures those unique, ethnic sounds.

This new sound library is the first sample collection from the traditional music of Ainu. The sounds produced in Hokkaido filled with nature have warmth, tenderness and even strength. This is completed as an energetic masterpiece which conveys the excellent musical culture of the Ainu.

This new library contains the beautiful music and voices of Ms. Umeko Ando, who is a Mukkuri player representing Ainu musicians. It consists of her slow and meditative "UPOPO (songs) and the sounds of "MUKKURI (Jews Harp) plus the sounds from one of the traditional Ainu instruments the "TONKORI (stringed instrument).

Even though many creators have been getting interested in the excellent traditional music of the Ainu, the sounds have not been available until now. Now we hope that sound creators will bring this historicaly rich, traditional music into the modern music of today.

Price: $55
